This seemed like an appropriate Instagram post as I was heading out to the trails for a 5 hour long run!
I made sure to lay every thing out the night before. Pre-run was 1 cup of coffee and half a Picky Bar. During my run, I ended up drinking around 50oz of water with Cocogo (Discount code: JENCHOOSESJOY (all caps), 3 Gu’s, and half a Picky Bar during my run. My goal was 100 calories per hour.
It takes a village! We picked up and dropped off friends throughout the 5 hour run. I am so grateful for the awesome company. It was super hot and humid, but we had a great run and the time flew by. 4,000ft gain!
After a much needed shower, I put on compression sleeves and drank my favorite Svelte protein shake.
And had the prettiest bowl of steel cut oats for breakfast…aka lunch because it was so late when we finished running.
It happened to be National Rose Day!
We stopped by the wine store and ended up leaving with a case.
I wanted a sweet treat, so I got a cup of froyo from Sweet Cece’s…piled high with cookie dough.
I totally understand why folks love their fitness trackers. It is so much fun to see my numbers before I go to bed at night. Now that I’m tapering, I won’t see these numbers again for another two weeks.
I woke up feeling surprisingly good after my long run, so I headed to the gym. An empty gym is such a luxury!!
I met Jason for a breakfast of fruit, oatmeal, and coffee (of course)!
And we hiked at Radnor Lake together. 🙂
How sweet are these turtles?!
My shirt du jour pretty much sums it up!
I am in love with acai bowls and Daily Juice just added one to their menu!
My version of Sunday meal prep is stocking up on lots of fruit at Whole Foods.
The latest Batch Box came in the mail and included the cutest summertime cookies…ALMOST too pretty to eat!
As a fundraiser, our local high school puts a flag in our yard for patriotic holidays. Sunday was Flag Day in the US…so pretty!
Peak and Pit of your weekend? Peak: Having an awesome long run with Corrie and so many wonderful friends! Pit: Post-froyo bellyache. (I might have to call it FroNo for a while.)
What do you drink or wear to speed up your recovery? I like tart cherry juice, Svelte, and compression sleeves. Oh, and lots of foam rolling.
Who watched Orange is the New Black this weekend? I didn’t get to watch any of it this weekend. I will remedy that this week.
Did you race or long run this weekend? Share!!
Happy Monday and #choosejoy!
